unusual as a trial lawyer, a criminal defense lawyer to be brought in. it is the only remedy the defendant has left in terms of trying to challenge his conviction. his best argument is that yale england galanter, his trial lawyer, became a material witness in this case. and didn't disclose that to the court. as a result of that, it affected his ability to represent mr. simpson or properly advise mr. simpson of his rights. one of which was the plea negotiation that was on the table, the two-year plea negotiation that was on the table that was never communicated to mr. simpson. secondarily, the right that he had to get up on the witness stand and testimony in his own defense. so the fact that he may have had a bias, the trial lawyer in this case, and was a material witness in the case because he was here at the time of the events. may be mr. simpson's best opportunity here. >> let me ask you about the fact that he could bring in the possible brain injuries as a result of playing football. how would they bring that in as a relevant element to this case and trying to get it overturne
